On Canon Pixma MP830 printer the alarm is blinking and the window read error 6500. I can't find that number of the manual. What do I have to do in order to print again. Thanks. ...


Hello,

The error 6500 refers to other hardware error. This error results from printer hardware failure and the only solution is replacing the malfunctioning hardware.

It is generally logic board error code. If the printer is under warranty, you better ask for replacement.

Canon IP5200R printer. Green & red led`s flash 20 times, pause & repeat. print head will not come out of park position on righthand side. Fault occurred while printing a photo error 6500 displayed


Hello!

Error 6500 or green and red flashes 20 times, mean hardware error. Particularly, the Logic Board Assembly

There are two possible fix: first is to reset the printer's waste ink counter and the second is to replace the Logic Board Assembly (part # QM2-2733)
alpug_67.jpg


Reset the Waste Ink Counter:
1) With the printer power turned off, while pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press and hold the
Power button. (DO NOT release the buttons. The Power LED lights in green to indicate that a
function is selectable.)
2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (DO NOT release the Power
button.)
3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button 2 times, and then release both the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and Power LEDs light alternately, Alarm in orange and Power in green, starting with Alarm LED.)
4) When the Power LED lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button 4 times (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and Power LEDs light alternately, Alarm in orange and Power in green, starting with Alarm LED.)

What is error code 6500?


This is an error indicating a problem with the Logic Board Assembly. It's probably not worth fixing, with printer prices being fairly low.\

According to the MP800 Service Manual:

2-2. Service Call Errors (by Cyclic Blinking in Orange (Alarm LED) and Green (COPY button), or
Alarm LED Lit in Orange)

Service call errors are indicated by the number of cycles the Alarm LED and COPY button blink, and the corresponding error
code is displayed on the LCD.

*Cycles of blinking in orange (Alarm LED) and green (COPY button) - 20 times

*Other hardware error - Error

*Error Code - [6500]

*Conditions - The PCI bus error is detected by the ASIC.

*Solution (Replacement of listed parts, which are likely to be faulty) - Logic board ***'y

Pixma MP170 all in one printer error on led screen ''check printer 6500'' alarm light and power light flashing.


Light blinking 20 times or Error Code [6500] = Hardware Error.
You will need to replace the QM2-3210-000 LOGIC BOARD ASSY.
But it's not worth to do the repair job.
Suggest you consider to purchase a new machine.
Thank you.

ERROR CODE 6500


Hi there 

The 6500 error code is a logic board error code. The PCI Bus error is detected by the ASCI. Sounds like it needs new logic board. but i suggest you to first of all you can try to reset your printer -

1. Turn the printer off with the Power button (if available).
2. Disconnect the data cable from the printer.
3. Unplug the printer's power cord for approximately 10 minutes, and then plug it back in. 
4. Turn the printer back on. If this works you're done, if not try the next step.

1. After confirming that the printer is powered on, open the paper output tray.
2. Open the top cover and wait until the print head moves to the center.
3. Open the inner cover and check that ink tanks are properly seated.
4. Properly seated
5. Press down on each ink tank until a click is heard.
6. Close the inner cover and top cover

if reset method not works for you then you go for the new logic board replacement .............

Good Luck!!

Thanks
